• VW 181. Der Kurier der Bundeswehr

    Who doesn’t know the KÄFER IN KAMPFSUIT, the army jeep, which was officially called VW KURIERWAGEN? After all, the VW 181 shaped everyday life in the Bundeswehr in the 1970s and 1980s and was therefore part of the street scene during every manoeuvre.
    But how did it come about? Where was it built? What technology was hidden under the olive-green body? What technical changes did it undergo during the construction period? Where was it used? What upgrade kits were there?
    These and other questions about the military VW 181 are answered on 132 pages with just as many b/w pictures, many of them previously unpublished. An appendix with 20 pages completes the book.
